Description
From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Valmiki's Ramayana is believed to be the first poetic work written in Sanskrit. It is therefore referred to as the Adikavya. It is said that Brahma assured Valmiki that, "as long as the mountains stand and the rivers flow, so long shall the Ramayana be read by men."

Valmiki's monumental work caught the fancy of innumerable minds after him and influenced many other great poems, plays and novels written along the same theme, in almost all the Indian languages. Among these are the Hindi, Tamil and Bengali versions of the Ramayana written by Tulsidas in the North, Kamban in the South and Krittivasa in the East.

Our story of Kumbhakarna, the gigantic younger brother of Ravana, the King of Lanka, has been derived from Krittivasa's Ramayana, written over 500 years ago. As a poet of the people, Krittivasa's story was written in simple language replete with delightful metaphors.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
